The Four Freedoms. Painted by Norman Rockwell. WWII ERA PRINTS WITH ORIGINAL MAILING ENVELOPE.

Rockwell, Norman (illus).
[Indianapolis]. Saturday Evening Post. [ 1943].
Four offset color lithographs, image area 13 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches on sheet 16 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches, WITH ORIGINAL MAILING ENVELOPE. Envelope: moderate wear and soiling with two 1 inch areas of paper loss, penciled name to verso. Prints: light edge toning, soft general creasing, slight bump to upper corners, tiny chip to lower right corner of Freedom to Worship print (well outside image area), 1/4 x 1/2 inch paper loss to left margin of Freedom from Want print (outside image area); overall good clean condition. The complete set of Norman Rockwell's most famous illustrations: Freedom of Speech, Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom of Worship. Rockwell intended them for patriotic posters, but the Office of War Information wasn't interested. They were subsequently published by the Saturday Evening Post, and were so popular that in May 1943 the Post and the U.S. Treasury Department started a joint fundraising campaign by sending the original paintings on an exhibition tour. These prints appear to be souvenir of that tour -- an eagle printed at upper left on the enveope carried a sign reading "U.S. Treasury Department and Saturday Evening Post WAR BOND SHOW" Item #29867
